Question

1. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (X< -1.96)

2. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (1.20 <X<1.96)

3. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr ( -1.96<X< 1.20)

Please use step by step work. I'm struggling to grasp the concepts. Thank you.

Answer #1

µ = 0, σ = 1

1. P(X < -1.96) =

= P( (X-µ)/σ < (-1.96-0)/1 )

= P(z < -1.96)

Using excel function:

= NORM.S.DIST(-1.96, 1)

= **0.025**

-------------------

2.

P(1.20 < X < 1.96) =

= P( (1.20-0)/1 < (X-µ)/σ < (1.96-0)/1 )

= P(1.20 < z < 1.96)

= P(z < 1.96) - P(z < 1.2)

Using excel function:

= NORM.S.DIST(1.96, 1) - NORM.S.DIST(1.2, 1)

= **0.0901**

-----------------

3.

P(-1.96 < X < 1.2) =

= P( (-1.96-0)/1 < (X-µ)/σ < (1.2-0)/1 )

= P(-1.96 < z < 1.2)

= P(z < 1.2) - P(z < -1.96)

Using excel function:

= NORM.S.DIST(1.2, 1) - NORM.S.DIST(-1.96, 1)

= **0.8599**

1. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (0<X<1.20)
2. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (0<X<1.96)
3. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (X<1.96)
4. Suppose X~N(0,1), what is Pr (X> 1.20)
Please use step by step work. I'm struggling with grasping the
process. Thank you.

Thank you:)

Problem 6.
1. If X ~ N(9; 4), find Pr(|X - 2 |< 4).
2. If X ~ N(0; 1), find Pr(|X + 3|> 5).
3. If X ~ N(-2; 9), find the number c such that Pr(|X + 2| < c)
= 0:5.

Suppose X ~ N(0,1).
a.) Derive the expression of cdf F(x) for X^2
b.) Find the numerical value of F(2)

Let X and Y be independent N(0,1) RVs. Suppose U =
(X+Y)/squareroot(2) and V = (X-Y)/squareroot(2).
Please derive the joint distribution of (U, V ) by using the
Jacobian matrix method.

Summation from n=2 to infinity of ln(n)/n^2 * x^n
a.) Let x=-1, and compute the integral test to determine whether
this it is convergent or divergent
b.) Compute the ratio test to determine the interval of
convergence and explain what this interval represents.
I'm really confused with this problem (specifically a)- please
write out all of the details of computing the integral so I can
understand. Thank you!

If X ~ N (3, 2²) and Y ~ N(1, 2²) what is the distribution of 2X-Y??
please show all the step.

Suppose (Z1, Z2) is a bivariate Gaussian pair of random
variables with Z1 ~ N (0,1), Z2 ~ (0,1) and cov (Z1, Z2) = -0.5.
Find P (Z2 >2 | Z1=-2). The answer is 0.1241. Can you explain
why? Thank you.

1. Let X be a discrete random variable. If Pr(X<6) = 1/5, and
Pr(X>6) = 1/7, then what is Pr(X=6)?
Please specify your answer in decimal terms and round your
answer to the nearest hundredth (e.g., enter 12 percent as
0.12).
